Recently I've notice the forum pages take longer to load. Is it me or did something change?
Yes. There's a plugin attached to this BBS software that bogs down the browser. I use Linux with Firefox; and I can open up the Monitor and see "firefox plugin-container." I kill it, and things work normally for a moment - then the plugin reloads and it bogs down.Recently I've notice the forum pages take longer to load. Is it me or did something change?
FWIW, I have AdBlock Plus, and it's not stopping it. So don't get your hopes up thinking an ad blocker will solve things.LT, Tried clearing history and reloading with no improvement.
JustPassinThru, that seems to make sense. The page paints quickly but you can't scroll or navigate for several seconds.
I have Chromium (non-Google Chrome) on this machine; but I use it as my clean, secure browser. I ONLY use it on sensitive sites involving money or sensitive data - banks, credit-card companies, my company website, which I have to access periodically. I can't be just using it everywhere.Seems there's a lot of different browsers and even OSes involved here. Strangely, I don't see any of it using Chrome with the AdBlockPlus extension. Can each of you affected please post the following info:
1) OS you use
3) either a screencap of the ad (or plugin?) that's causing the delay, or the URL to it.
4) any other consistent factors you feel are contributing to it.
With that info, I can get either the IT guys or the ad guys to sort it out.
Thanks Shane for looking into this for us.hey all!
@Smitty : i would put IE in compatibility mode since it kind of has issues with most recent sites now a days.
@JustPassinThru: I have not even heard of that browser before. so its working with other browsers then?
@everyone: a lot of the issues brought up sound either "hardware acceleration" type issue, and issues with jogging down on shockwave/flash issues. If i could add to the troubleshoot and ask those with outdated flash to update, or remove completely due to incompatibility issues. this could help to resolve the issues possibly. Another task i would do is disk cleanup on your operating system end. temp files can also cache up, and should be deleted through the browser and on the computer end as well.
let me know if these work for you. Im loading fine, no ad blocker, and on firefox. so recreating the problem on this end has turned out unsuccessful.
This is good advise! If you are new to Ccleaner, make sure to take the check out of the box for / that will "Empty Recycle Bin", UNLESS you would like it to perform that task for you. It's a good free program, make sure to download it directly from the official web site. m.I’m running Mozilla with Ad-Block with absolutely no issues.
Regularly use CCleaner for each session.
IE is an open hole into your system – a hackers dream – your choice ……
